Re: 393: Shovel Knight DLC

We’re postponing the second Shovel Knight show due to the delay of release to the final piece of dlc. We’ll resurrect this thread nearer the time, next year. That’s a good idea. Are you subbing in a show planned for next year? Surely Donkey Konga would make a perfect replacement. No, we're aplittin...

Re: Shmups

We’ve steadfastly managed to avoid pointless PC v console (and console v other console) debates on here for over seven years, I’d really rather we kept it that way. Every platform has its pros and cons, and everyone has their own preferences. That’s all anyone needs to know. In particular, can we ke...

Re: 385: Prey (2017)

We intend to cover the dlc too, but if we can’t get it played or contain the discussion within the time we might keep it for another time, a la Shovel Knight.

Sorry to not be definite at this point.

Re: Shmups

It’s a similar mechanic to a lot of old games so I found it fairly intuitive.

Early impressions are excellent.

I mean, I’ve played a lot of these games sure, but I’m a bang average gamer, and quite old.

I bought Rolling Gunner last night and got to the ‘extra’ final boss on my first credit on the easier mode.

Oh, poo! Sorry to hear that.

I think there is a fix that others have found. Perhaps they can share it here..?

That’s us, we’re having a few issues and have been trying some things out. Hopefully only temporary.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

DoS was my personal ‘GotY’ when it came out in 2005, though I don’t hold it in quite the same regard as I do SotN.

I still haven’t played beyond the first hour of Aria though. Saving it..!

Re: Shmups

Not many games stay exclusive. My hunch is it will pop up on at least PS4 at some point.
